Course Maps

Uphill to start, over the Mt Scanzi saddle and steeply down to Duffys Corner. Turning left here, winding down towards the gorgeous Bugong Creek Crossing (may get wet feet, depending on water levels!), and along the dirt Bugong Road in it’s entirety, before heading off to the right and down the escarpment and along some beautiful verdant upper Shoalhaven River land and then climbing sharply back out of there. Lots of beautiful sandstone cliffs to admire along the way. Once at the top, you have a lovely gentle downhill before rejoining Bugong Road to head back the way you came. When you reach Duffys Corner once more, instead of taking a right hand turn up Mt Scanzi Road, you instead continue along the rustic Duffys Lane, gently rising until you reach the turnaround near Tallowa Dam Road. You head back along Duffys Lane and take a left up Mt Scanzi, with only the nasty downhill to go to get to the beautiful grounds of the Kangaroo Valley Country Club to the finish. 1391m of elevation gain.
